SCARAVELLI INSPIRED RETREAT
25 MAY TO 1 JUNE, WADI RUM, PETRA & DEAD SEA
with beautiful yogini Liz Warrington
The vast and tranquil expanse of the majestic desert sets the stage for a transformative Scaravelli-inspired retreat with Liz Warrington. In the embrace of this magical landscape, Liz's yoga becomes a gateway to awakening the spine, freeing the breath, and connecting with the grounding support beneath you—a liberation that sets your soul free. This journey invites you to forge an intimate relationship not only with the earth but also with the extraordinary desert that surrounds you and the divine space within.
Through Liz's experienced guidance, you embark on a profound exploration, dismantling any limiting beliefs that suggest separation and recognising that your body is a harmonious whole. Delve into gentle yet dynamic movements, moving toward postures that encourage the inclusion of every part of yourself. Feel the power of releasing on the outbreath and the revitalization on the inbreath, paving a path towards compassion and wholeness.
The Pink Spirit herd, with its intuitive movement, joins you on this transformative journey. Sandra Jelly facilitates a constellation guided by these magnificent beings, where forgotten or suppressed parts of yourself are remembered. Wisdom is harvested, and that which no longer serves you is released.
Embrace the unknown, allowing the expression of your true self. Witness the emergence of a more expansive version of yourself.
In the loving presence of Liz, Sandra, and the supportive group, you find a safe haven to explore the depths of your being. A compassionate circle is created, enabling you to surrender to your true, creative, and authentic self. Tap into the profound healing energy residing deep within you through breath, movement, and the reflections of the horses and donkey. Share your journey with others, gaining courage and trust in the realization that you are more than meets the eye.

“ Liz Warrington is an outstanding teacher. I loved her hands on approach and how she catered to all physical abilities within the group using gentle and thorough explanations. She taught yoga philosophy and meditation with kindness and relaxation, humour and thoughtfulness. As a trainee yoga teacher myself, I learned more from Liz in one short week than I had from my own instructors.”
— Roisin, 2019
“Liz is a rare precious gem of a yoga teacher. She is truly gifted not just as a yoga teacher but as craniosacral therapist. It’s the combination of these that bring such a healing quality to her teaching.Her wisdom and deep knowledge of the body and her ability to hold space for whatever arises for her students is so inspiring. Yoga with Liz comes straight from the heart and goes straight to the heart ”

About Scaravelli Inspired Yoga
Scaravelli-inspired yoga takes the focus of doing the poses and places it instead on cultivating a set of conditions that allow the body’s natural intelligence to awaken.
In addition to rest and undoing, we tune into rhythm brought about by the natural breath that invites the poses to come to us. Gone is the old paradigm of wanting to push or pull ourselves into shapes as we welcome a state of listening and waiting so we might go with and the body on a wave of release. A wave that has the potential to dissolve the ´I-ness´ and take us to the heart of yoga.
Liz is a cranio sacral therapist, yoga teacher, mother of twins and a dog lover. In 1988, guided and inspired by Peter Blackaby and ashram experiences she began the study and practise of yoga. She joined Brighton's Natural Bodies Centre at it's inception; the heart of Scaravelli inspired yoga in the UK and taught there for 10 years. She facilitates retreats throughout Europe, in India and Egypt and now has her own homestudio in Spain. She welcomes and has worked with people of all ages, backgrounds and abilities, including children and elderly. Specifically the cultivation of attention and stillness and body listening skills have informed her yoga to become an intimate exploration of the self.
Sandra is an artist, social entrepreneur, equine assisted coach who lives with her furry tribe of cats, dogs, horses and a donkey already 15 years in Wadi Rum. She designs sustainable handwoven bags, offers shamanic medicine journeys and facilitates her Pink Spirit desert retreats. She works with movement, energy, sound, the elements and horses.
Together, they invite you on a deep inner journey into the raw desert beauty of Southern Jordan to awaken your intrinsic healing power and source of inner wisdom.
